Cranberry Wishes Table Runner - A Finish
The table runner is finished.
I'm sure you are thinking haven't I seen this table runner before? What wasn't finished on it then?
1 - I had to decide if I was going to do the raw edge applique.
2 - I found a strip which did not get caught and it needed to be repaired.
3 - It needed a label.
I choose to skip the applique because if I use this on the table, I want dishes to sit flat. That and generally speaking applique is not something I do.
The repair took a bit of thought. I came up with a solution, which although is visible to me, shouldn't really be visible to anyone else -- especially if I've got the table set on top of it.
The label I printed a label and then 'bound' it with the backing fabric. A bit of sticky fusible to hold it in place while I hand stitched it down.
This project is done!
